Scientific summary

With a clinical activity and also time dedicated to research, I work actively in the field of primary cancer prevention and health promotion.

The challenge is to act on modifiable risk factors for cancer in target populations. We are developing various innovative approaches and devices for this purpose.

I also coordinate the deployment of the Interception programme ( at the Comprehensive Cancer Center Léon Bérard and analyse its transferability.

My work also focuses on promoting the HPV vaccine (, and updating information pages for the public, on risk factors for women's cancers, on our team's website (
